Planning Phase

Construction Notice: Ramp Closure/ Detour

The offramp from U.S. Highway 24 eastbound to Union Boulevard closes for a week starting on Monday, June 26, to install signal poles at the bottom of the offramp.

During this closure, traffic bound for Union Boulevard will be detoured to Chelton Road, north to Airport Road, and west back to Union Boulevard.

Motorists should expect lane closures and flagging operations on Union Boulevard, especially later in the week during signal pole installation. Motorists should use caution, watch for crews, and seek alternate routes.


The City of Colorado Springs Public Works Department is leading the preliminary design phase of the US Hwy 24 and Peterson Road/Boulevard Interchange Design Planning Project. The project will provide preliminary design and environmental clearance required to reconstruct the US 24/Peterson Boulevard Interchange to provide a safer, more secure, and more efficient transition to the Peterson SFB North Gate. The project will support Peterson Space Force Base (SFB) access control in day-to-day and emergency operations and account for increased traffic capacity on the adjacent roadways associated with planned growth in the Pikes Peak region. The project will consider complete transportation options within the adjacent corridors to include bus and bicycle lanes, sidewalks, and trails.
